CARE Wall and our first project...
We started the term looking at the MPPS CARE values of;Collaboration, Achievement, Responsibility and Empathy. We examined what these values look like in Visual Arts and displayed it all on our 'CARE Wall'. These values were implemented in the first artwork of the year in which we explored painting using materials other than paint brushes.
PLC & SLC - Fingerprint Creatures: We started by creating a background using a screwed up piece of newspaper to apply the paint. We then used our fingers to apply dots to our backgrounds. Once this was done, we used a black fineliner to add wings, legs and antennae to our dots to turn them into creatures.
CLC - Edge Printing: We started by creating a background using a sponge to apply the paint. We then created a native Australian animal or flower using the edge of a piece of cardboard to print with.
YYLC - Foam Etching: First we sketched our nature themed designs in our workbooks. We then etched the design into printing foam. Finally we used metallic paint on black paper to stamp our designs.
Great work everybody!
